Why Erin Cuming chose Austin

Property is a short Uber/cab ride to downtown. Lots of awesome things to do in East Austin, or go check out all of Austin's festivals, and events, but enjoy some space in this house rather than cramped in hotels.

What makes this house unique

no creaky floors, or drafty rooms. a great new house by local builder designed for a fun time.

Comfortable house in the heart of East Austin!

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our stay! Erin was a great host. The AC didn't work on the first night, and Erin immediately hired a repairman and stayed in communication until it was fixed. The house was spacious with 3 nice bedrooms upstairs, and a pull-out couch downstairs. Modern, clean and easy location for us while we attended a wedding at the Tillery Place. Thanks for being such a great host, Erin!

Bang for your buck

  • 4 of 5

Nice rental! Although its in an under developed neighbor hood its exactly what the pictures show. Nice set up for adults to party without being crowded. A suggestion that would make the stay better would be to add tv's in the bedrooms, and enough towels for each room. At least 2 sets per room. This place is really close to 6th st which makes for good fun. I gave 4 stars because parking wasnt ideal if you have more than 2 vehicles. Overall it served its purpose.

Spacious, Modern, Clean, & Minutes From Downtown

  • 5 of 5

I had the pleasure of staying at this property for a bachelorette party with seven girls. The accommodations were perfect! The house was extremely spacious (even with seven primping girls) and had a modern feel to it. In addition, it was an easy trip from downtown along with many other landmark locations in Austin. The host was very attentive to our needs and the check-in/out process was hassle-free. I would highly recommend this property and if I travel again to Austin with a group, you better believe that I will be trying to rent this space again!

Great location, but needs cleaning

  • 3 of 5

We stayed a weekend here for a bachelorette party and there was more than enough room for all of us! Home is newly built and modern, has everything you'd need for a getaway, towels, linens, etc. Beds were super comfortable as well! Location was only a 5-10 minute ride to Rainey St. and many restaurants.

My complaints are the lack of maintenance/cleaning. We stayed here because it had great reviews and would sleep all of us without being cramped. The description lists a Keurig and DVDs, but there was no DVD player or DVDs. I told everyone to bring K-cups, only to arrive and find there was a coffee pot, so we had to run back to the store and get coffee (there were filters). No trash bags, so I suggest bringing those as well. I'm not sure if the cleaning people were not thorough this time around, but one nightstand drawer had unused PH test strips in the drawer and there were plastic garment bags laying in the closet floor.

My biggest issue happened when we pulled the bedding out of the linen closet for the sleeper sofa downstairs and a live roach came out of the blanket and crawled onto my friends arm... We killed one additional roach in the upstairs bathroom. While cleaning up the kitchen before our departure, I went to load the dishwasher only to realize no one ever unloaded the clean dishes and put them back in the cabinets from the previous guests.

Overall, we had a great stay and we made everything work just fine! However, when you're paying a decent amount of money to stay somewhere for a bachelorette weekend, I expected it to at least be picked up and cleaned.
